Obama Getting 'Fancy' With His Words Goes Viral

President's edited words blend with the song of the summer

First things first, have you seen Barack Obama singing Fancy?

YouTube channel baracksdubs, known for mashing up the President's speeches into popular songs, has taken on the popular Iggy Azalea rap in its latest video. And, we have to admit, the clip—which has been viewed 6.9 million times since it was uploaded on Aug. 5—is even more entertaining that the brilliant original Clueless-themed music video.

However, even presidential power couldn't top this week's number one video by DisneyCollector. The unboxing video breaks down the contents of the newest Play-Doh Sparkle Disney Princess collection. Admittedly, the clip seems like a snoozefest. But, as Buzzfeed pointed out, the mysterious YouTuber has had massive success on the platform, partially because kids seem to be glued the infomercial-style content. This clip is no different: It's been viewed 25.5 million times since it was uploaded on July 11.
